£900000 High Newbiggin Street, York


Existing Holiday Let Business For Sale.

4 recently refurbished Freehold apartments, set within a walled courtyard, located just minutes’ walk from the heart of the city.

The business has traded successfully for 5 years and is running currently and has an excellent website (www.minstersreach.co.uk) and is run through a local holiday let company. There are healthy bookings throughout the forth coming months, and repeat business is building (alongside excellent reviews).

As a commercial property, the apartments fall under business rates (not council tax) and benefit from a lower comparable Stamp Duty levy.

With use of quality sofa beds the apartments can accommodate up to 20 guests at one time – giving excellent flexibility for the owners to target their preferred groups.

Full Description


Located off Lord Mayors Walk, just a short walk from York Minster, York Theatre Royal and the multitude of shops, bars and cafes on offer. A perfect position for visitors to enjoy York from. Parking is available in Monk Bar car park that is on the door step of the development – perfect from unloading the luggage!

The Development

All 4 apartments are set within a private walled courtyard and were refurbished 2017 with further upgrades to come this January to add further to the high quality finish throughout. A big bonus is the good-sized store, that works brilliantly as a linen/extraneous items store – handy for turning round the apartments between bookings.

The property is freehold, but can be sold leasehold if required.

We are advised by the vendor that in the last year the gross annual income was in the region of £118,000.

The apartments continue to receive very strong feedback both online and in the visitor books.

The current owner employs a holiday let company to manage the properties as he lives away from York. However, a local owner could manage the properties themselves and avoid additional agency fees.
